It Will Be All Right

Jeremiah 15:11 KJV
The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.

This is a great promise in God's Word.

The Prophet is speaking about the remnant of those faithful to the Lord. Among the Jews, though the most of them had completely turned from a true walk with the living God, still there were some that had remained faithful. To those God promises that it would be well with them.

They were sinners just as the rest of the Jews were. We all are. And as sinners they would also experience the chastisement of God.
They would too be captured by the enemy.
They would too be dispossessed of their land
They would too be carried off to foreign places

But God said of them that, though they were chastened, it would be all right. It would be well with them.

We live in sinful times. And even those Christian who today strive to live for the Lord get caught up in the sins of the present evil world. We do things that are wrong and sometimes we have trouble seeing the error of tem because they are so prominent in our world. For these sins we must be corrected. But it will still be well with us. God's chastening in meant to be corrective on our part and not punitive. Our judgment has been paid; the wrath of God has been revealed for us against Christ Jesus. Yes; God longs to make us Christlike, but He has no intention of destroying us.

Praise God, it shall be well with thy remnant.
